MORTGAGE STUFF (C-Loans Client Letter)

You are receiving this letter because you are a commercial mortgage broker client of either Blackburne & Sons or C-Loans, Inc. Removal instructions are below. Today we'll talk about how commercial property values are rising. And as always, we have lots of great jokes, funny pics, and an amazing video.

Joke Du Jour

Historians have recently discovered that Annie Oakley, the famed sharp-shooter of the Old West, had a sister. The sister gained some renown in her day as a singer in various saloons throughout the West, but it was not until after her death that she was so widely known. Today countless bars are dedicated to Carrie Oakley.

Hang Gliding Joke

Bubba decided to save up and get a hang-glider. He takes it to the highest mountain, and after struggling to the top, he gets ready to take flight. He takes off running, reaches the edge, and... into the wind he goes. Meanwhile, Ma and Pa Hicks were sittin' on the porch swing, talkin' about the good ole days, when Ma spots the biggest bird she has ever seen. "Look at the size of that bird, Pa!" she exclaims. Pa sits up and says, "Git my gun, Ma." She runs into the house and brings out his pump shotgun. He takes careful aim. BANG...BANG.....BANG.....BANG! The monster size bird continues to sail silently over the tree tops. "I think ya missed him, Pa," she says. "Yeah," he replies, "but at least he let go of Bubba!"

Such Power in Our Hands

Commercial Real Estate Is Really Appreciating

According to a recent report, an index of all commercial property prices rose by 0.70% in July and a whopping 14.9% for the past 12 months. This index is called the Moody’s/RCA Commercial Property Price Indice (CPPI). This is one of the fastest rates of appreciation that I can remember.

Do you need to place a commercial real estate loan of any size or type? You definitely should enter the deal into C-Loans.com. It's free! And remember, C-Loans has closed over 1,000 commercial real estate loans totaling over $1 billion.

Cravings Joke

Q: What is the most common pregnancy craving?
A: For men to be the ones who get pregnant.

Preferred Equity "Loans"

Do you really understand preferred equity? This free whitepaper will help you to truly understand it. It's written in easy-to-understand layman's language.

You'll use preferred equity in three common scenarios. (1) You have an investor buying a non-owner-user commercial-investment property. The bank refuses to make a first mortgage larger than 60% LTV. The buyer only wants to put down 25%. We'll cover the gap. (2) Your client has a balloon payment coming due, but he can't qualify for a new first mortgage large enough to pay off the old first mortgage. We'll cover the gap. (3) Your client wants to buy out an impossible partner. We'll provide the capital to buy him out.

Tom Brady Joke

"Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said over the weekend that he's not sure who he'll vote for, but he loves Donald Trump. I guess Brady just loves anything that releases air." -- Seth Meyers

Business Loans Not Secured By Real Estate

I'm talking here about unsecured business loans, equipment loans, leases, inventory loans, factoring, accounts receivable financing, asset-backed lines of credit, etc.

The reason you want to get into the business of brokering business loans is because such loans close in 10 to 14 days, NOT three months.

C-Loans.com is now offering business financing. Please click here if you are trying to pace a business loan not secured by real estate.

Tom Brady Joke II

Today a judge overturned Tom Brady's four-game suspension and will let him play in next week's opening game. The judge said, “After careful consideration of the evidence from both parties, I rule in favor of my fantasy football team.” -- Jimmy Fallon

Awesome Video

Watch an eagle's flight from the top of the world’s tallest building to his handler below. You can see him looking, looking, looking for the trainer, invisible to a human eye, then fold his/her wings and drop like a bullet to that trainer. Very cool. On Saturday, 14th March, an eagle was fitted with a camera - an "Eaglecam" - and took flight from that building, the Burj Khalifa, in Dubai . Here is the film. The eagle would have no idea where that speck of land was or what it looked like. It actually had to pick out and recognize the trainer. What surprises me is how smooth the flight is with no camera shake whatsoever.

Here's the film.

Final Funny (PG-13)

Two alligators were sitting at the side of the swamp near Washington,DC. The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said, "I can't understand how you kin be so much bigger 'n me. We're the same age, we was the same size as kids. I just don't get it." "Well," said the big 'gator, What you been eatin' boy?" "Politicians, same as you," replied the small 'gator. "Hmm. Well, where do y'all catch 'em?" "Down 'tother side of the swamp near the parkin' lot by the capitol." "Same here. Hmm. How do you catch 'em?" "Well, I crawls up under one of them Lexus and wait fer one to unlock the car door. Then I jump out, grab 'em on the leg, shake the manure out of 'em, and eat 'em!" "Ah!" says the big alligator, "I think I see your problem. You ain't gettin' any real nourishment. See, by the time you get done shakin' the manure out of a Politician, there ain't nothin' left but the hind quarters and a briefcase."
